I beat breast cancer after having surgery in 2014 when I was 37 years old. This past October I decided to train to run. I had never ran before and could not even run for one minute without total exhaustion. After training for 6 weeks, a friend told me about the Reindeer Run. I registered and it was my first run ever. At 38 years old I was really running! The Reindeer Run gave me the confidence I needed to register for more runs in the future. I ran up every hill and although it was challenging, it was not impossible. The safety of the course was superb and there were so many people cheering me on. Total strangers!! What an experience! I’m so glad I had the opportunity to choose this particular run as my first ever!
